This paper addresses the issues of distributed interactions in a simulation based medial training environment, where a team of doctors, nurses and assistants are trained for handling difficult delivery situations using simulations. A scripting language is proposed, using a metaphor of play, with which the timing and mapping issues in distributed presentations are covered. A generic architecture for the systems is also presented,
which covers the timing and mapping issues of conducting such a script in a medical training environment. The difference between playing a medical training scenario and playing a multimedia entertainment scenario is discussed, based on which the future research and development are proposed.
